Gone With the Wind: 75th Anniversary Edition Our reviewers have been busy this week, filling the DVD Talk Review Database more great entries. Some new reviews of note include: Gone With the Wind: 75th Anniversary Edition - Old-style Hollywood at its best, right here, and this deluxe edition is a fantastic showcase for this controversial yet gorgeously conceived masterpiece; Steven Spielberg Director's Collection - Universal offers new Blu-rays of several Spielberg titles in conjunction with a couple of shows that fans have most likely already bought but the image and sound quality of what's offered is top-rank; and Nightbreed: The Director's Cut - a legitimate director's cut of the movie, it includes a lot of new footage and corrects the results of studio meddling... the film is immeasurably improved because of it. Other recent reviews include: Nekromantik, Squirm, and The First Power.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Birdman Before you head off to the cinema this weekend, check out DVD Talk's reviews of the latest releases including: Birdman - Michael Keaton plays a washed up actor who produces a stage play based on the character he made popularized back in the day... the film is uniquely effective as both a drama and comedy; Fury [review #2, review #3] - an incredibly bleak look at battle and one of the more intense war films to come about recently; and The Book of Life - this new animated feature is a wonderful story placed within the context of the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead Other recent films include: Dracula Untold, Gone Girl, Harmontown, A Walk Among the Tombstones, The Maze Runner, Kelly & Cal, The Drop, The Skeleton Twins, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, The November Man, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Guardians of the Galaxy, 22 Jump Street, and How to Train Your Dragon 2. Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.

The Birthday Boys A recent addition to the sketch-comedy landscape, IFC’s The Birthday Boys, executive produced by Bob Odenkirk (Mr. Show) and Ben Stiller (The Ben Stiller Show) , adapts the troupe’s popular Upright Citizens Brigade stage show to television, with a second season kicking off October 17 at 11 p.m. EST. Three members of the group, Dave Ferguson, Mike Hanford and Tim Kalpakis, spent a little time with DVDTalk’s Francis Rizzo III for a delightful little chat about translating the stage to TV, working with Dana Carvey and combating segregation. Read all this, and more, in the latest DVD Talk Interview.

The Equalizer: The Complete Collection Interested in the latest TV on DVD reviews? DVD Talk has you covered! This week's notable entries include: The Equalizer: The Complete Collection - VEI presents another excellent series that has been largely forgotten. This show revolves around a retired British intelligence operative who offers his services to atone for past sins... it's dark, moody, and boldly ambiguous. A show ripe for rediscovery; About a Boy: Season 1 - based on the book by Nick Hornby (and the Hugh Grant film) this sitcom remains a pleasant surprise with terrific leads that have strong chemistry; and Rick and Morty: Season 1 - an animated sci-fi comedy that is so outlandish and reality-bending that it's hard to believe they actually air it... the best new animated show on television. Other shows recently reviewed include:  Martin Clune's Wild Life, Revolution: Season 2, and Bates Motel: Season Two.  Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

Edge of Tomorrow This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Edge of Tomorrow - A clever, exciting and funny screenplay, good direction and a fine performance from Tom Cruise (he plays a jerk) grace a Sci-fi combat action spectacle; Iguana - a disfigured misanthrope enslaves captives on a desert island and takes what he wants from them -- obedience, sex -- with threats of violence. It's brutal and raw but also honest and strangely poetic; and Run Silent, Run Deep - Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster command a U.S. sub on a forbidden personal mission of vengeance, seeking out the Japanese destroyer that sank Gable's sub a year before. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

Penny Dreadful: The Complete First Season Some great discs are being released this week. Check out these new movies: Penny Dreadful: The Complete First Season [review] - writer/creator John Logan has stitched together pieces of gothic literature, from Mary Shelley to Oscar Wilde and touches of Bram Stoker, into a horror-focused patchwork that provides eerie drama above knee-jerk thrills; My Darling Clementine [review] - John Ford directs Henry Fonda in this film centering on the shootout at the O.K. Corral, but Ford fleshes out the characters in this often-told story to such a degree that it should be required viewing for all cinephiles; and The Death Kiss [review] - this 1933 Bela Lugosi film is one of the best Blu-ray surprises of 2014, it's extremely entertaining throughout, smart, and creative in every department. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Audrey Hepburn Collection Our reviewers have been busy this week, filling the DVD Talk Review Database more great entries. Some new reviews of note include: Audrey Hepburn Collection - this assemblage of previously released Blu-ray editions of Sabrina, Funny Face and Breakfast at Tiffany's is a fantastic showcase for the magnetic screen icon in a simple, affordably-priced package; Roger & Me - Michael Moore's early documentary is more relevant than ever and deserves a revisit; and The Adventures of Marco Polo - even with with Gary Cooper miscast in the leading role, this is an agreeably light, silly adventure beautifully mounted and briskly handled with a bemused, cynical sense of humor. Other recent reviews include: The Death Kiss, To Be and To Have, and Salvador.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.
